I definitely have an attack of heart fever.
This coupled with my new cutting/pressing unit has increased my output somewhat.
Karen was absolutely delighted with her blue and cream version and it has spurred her on to redecorate her bedroom to match.
And the sand version here was given to Trish, the lady who does the other half of the secretarial/admin function at work with me - my work other half.
Everyone was pleased and I had just as much pleasure making and giving.
I've two more just waiting for the handstitching on the binding and they will go to Karol-Ann on her return from South Africa and to Clare in the Dordogne - I'm not showing you them yet as I don't want to spoil their surprises.
I have a lilac one part appliqued and a green plaid one awaiting sandwiching - a veritable production line and I thought just what fun it would be to try a completely different version
So pulling out some hand dyes, which were originally terracotta and turquoise but overdyed with black ,I pieced a chequerboard centre and used this awesome rainbow batik for the contrast - I shall do multicoloured hearts and binding to complete it - just because I can!
The beauty of trialling something this small is even if you hate it at the end it hasn't taken up loads of time or yards of fabric.
I think this one might just end up being called Joseph's Multicoloured Hearts! :o)
